1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

The shooting bug...

    So, for one reason or another I've just not had time to get the gun out of its slip recently.... Well, since about January actually. Anyway I threw it in the back of the car when I went to visit my father-in-laws place in Suffolk at the weekend where he's got a bit of land. Thought I'd sneak an hour of plinking if I got lucky.... And lucky I duly became.... I have now got the shooting bug back big time.... So much so that I thought to hell with it and I'll treat myself and the TX to a few nice treats...


    First on the list, a little tune up. My TX200HC has always had a twang and quite a kick with recoil (it puts out 11.4lb) and although I've de-greased, polished the ends of the spring and re-greased with Napier airgun grease, it still twangs.... So, following a good smurf around this forum I've ordered a Tinbum drop in kit.... Looks the biz.... I have also scoured the bathroom for PTFE bottles that will be sliced up to become a piston sleeve. (Don't tell the wife but her shampoo bottle is for the chop).


    Cleaning will be aided by a new Hoppe's boar snake... The barrel hasn't been cleaned up till now and I've shot all sorts of pellets through it, so what the hey I'll give this a go and see if accuracy improves any.


    The TX came with a cheapo BSA essential scope, which I've been meaning to upgrade since day one.. so I've just ordered a Hawke Panorama 4-12x40 AO.... Ok so it's not knock-the-lights-out high end kit, but good enough for me at my budget... And the result of yet another forum recommendation.


    And finally I've ordered a nice new tin of AA fields, the TX's favourite food... lovely.


    I have now spent all my pocket money, but I can't wait for mr postman !! :)
